GMC has unveiled perhaps the best-equipped factory-built overland truck we’ve ever seen in the Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX, but unfortunately, it’s only a concept… for now, anyway.
Unveiled at the Overland Expo Mountain West 2021, the OVRLANDX shows the potential of the base GMC Canyon AT4 as an overlanding vehicle, and the results are impressive. The truck sports a factory-lifted wide-body chassis, a heavy-duty front bumper with a flush built-in winch, integrated front recovery points, wheel flares with integrated task lamps, and 33-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires. It boasts 10” of ground clearance, a 27.7-degree approach angle, and it can ford up to 32.1” of water thanks to the custom-tailored snorkel. There’s also a load of included gear built-in, like a rooftop tent, a 270-degree awning, gas and water Jerry cans, traction boards, an in-bed storage drawer system, a solar panel, a cooler, and a side-loaded kitchenette. In a press release, GMC says that consumer reaction to the concept will shape how they approach outdoor enthusiasts in the future, so maybe if we all ask nicely the company will build the Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX for real.
